This was an early stop, before work. Yeah, I had a beer before work. Itís a nice feeling actually, though this wasnít the best place to be at 11am on a week day. Itís a large place that has a few seats out front, a lot of seating inside, and a large patio in the back which is where the party is (when there are actually customers here). Theyíve only got about half a dozen taps but they have a bunch of bottles from all over and it was one of only two bars that I came across that had Anchor Christmas Ale still. That should be a bad sign but I take it as a good sign that the bar has the sense to order a crap load of that stuff. Iíll also mention that this is on Jefferson Davis about a block east from a trolley stop
I didnít try the food as I was set on eating at Crescent City Pie and Sausage but it looked OK. Seems pretty standard for a menu. Beer prices were a touch high but not as bad as some of the places in the French quarter. This is a much quieter area than Bourbon St but there are still a few places around worth walking to for a beer, and this is one of them.
I also want to mention that this place was shown to me by someone that found it on The Beer Buddhaís website. Heís a local that scours the entire city looking for better beer and steered me towards a half a dozen places that werenít on this site yet (more ratings to come). I donít think heís active here so check out his site.
